  1. Presenting Erik the Grim along with Vadis the Thorn Hound, 2 of the many Warhammer Underworlds minis I'm slowly trying to paint. Pretty pleased with both of them, but mostly I'm just happy to get something finished! As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received!
  2. Presenting Torgillius the Chamberlain, one of the big bads from Warhammer Quest:- The Cursed City by Games Workshop, and is the latest result in my attempt to (Very slowly) get the game painted up, as documented in my WIP thread. Despite making life hard for myself by painting his animal minions first and then having to try and paint everything else around them (The fox? got in the way a lot!), I'm really pleased with how he turned out, particularly my attempt at a bit of writing on his noticeboard thingy. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  3. Wanted to have another crack at getting all my Warhammer Underworlds stuff painted up (I've got almost 200 to do now). Rather than doing them in big batches, which can get overwhelming and then go unfinished, I'm going to try and paint each team, starting with my Hedonites:- A group of pleasure-seekers and obsessives brought together by a mysterious entity, the Hedonites endlessly pursue new extreme sensations and experiences when not carrying out tasks for their unknown leader. From left to right we have Vasilios (Obsessive hunter), Despina (Thrill killer and Vasilios's sister), Polyxeni (Mistress of mirror magic), Leonidas (Broken soldier) and Dimos (Drug-addled mutant). I'm starting with Poly:- She's not an Underworlds mini, but she fits in with the set. Made a start on her skin (Rosy Flesh with a Flesh Wash), not looking forward to getting in under her fancy hat to paint her eyes.
  4. I recently acquired the latest of Games Workshops Warhammer Quest games:- The Cursed City. I'd actually like to completely paint one of these things for once, and thought a project thread might help! First, I built everything (Well, maybe everything. Games Workshop continues to be kinda weird about this game, so I'm not sure if it's getting expansions or not):- And then made a spreadsheet. I can't batch paint, so even simple minis (like the rats and skeletons) I've put in small groups to help maintain momentum. I rolled a 5 (actually I rolled a 30 and then a 32, but I know this project is doomed if I start with a rat pile instead of something interesting):- Brutogg Corpse-Eater, unusual Ogre:- I've made him a simple base (I've been spoilt by all the integral ones I've been dealing with lately), mostly sand with some broken flagstone patches made of putty, and gave him the usual White Primer and Brown Wash undercoat. Leaving him to dry overnight.
  5. Hello everyone, here's the fifth dwarf of my Slayer unit. This model was sculpted in the mid-90s by Aly Morrison. Since I have two of these models in the unit I decided to convert this one. He was a standard bearer, I swap his banner for an axe. It was ll painted with Reaper MSP Color, here's the list;
  6. Hey everyone, this is the fourth Oldhammer dwarf of my Slayer unit. It was sculpted by Aly Morrison. All painted with Reaper MSP Color, here's the list;
  7. Hello everyone, here's my third Dwarf Giant Slayer. This model was also sculpted by Aly Morrison. All painted with Reaper MSP Color, here's the list;
  8. Presenting Celine, an Elf archer from the Luminth warband in the Warhammmer:- Underworlds game by Games Workshop. Lots of fiddly bits on this one, but she came out alright in the end. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  9. Was rummaging thru my loose figures when ran across this old classic and thought it might be a little fun to do after Oman, his long, lost brother.
  10. Presenting Jelsen the Vampire Hunter from Games Workshops Warhammer Quest:- Cursed City board game. Pretty pleased with this one, I was worried about how to paint certain areas (Like his little tucked away face), but I think he ended up looking decent. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  11. Just picking up on all the posts I've missed over the last few months. Battle Report! Turns out squigs are not just funny looking, they are funny to paint. I loved these models and really found they took amazing to dry brushing. I was testing colors and layers. Highs: * dry brush was excellent. Used some cheapo makeup brushes and they did great. * i used a purple glaze over orange and then built it up with orange further. Looked good. * blue came out great, but i don't know what layers to use on it to give contrast like the purple orange one. *teeth are all solid and look good. *skin folds are natural looking and added freckles on some are much better than expected. * the yellow one was testing out transparent paints and it went on like a dream. Lows: *not too many complaints really. These all came out more or less as expected. * challenged by how low they are to the base and getting them with ground effects. *never painted mushrooms and wasn't sure how to go about it.
  12. When the Space Pope absolutely needs someone to die very publicly and messily, he calls upon the services of a Mother Superior. One woman armies with no regard for the collateral damage they cause, towns, cities (and, according to legend, the occasional planet) are reduced to ruins as the Mother Superior single-mindedly pursues her target. Often the eternal struggle to protect Mankind from the Horrors that lurk beyond the stars requires subtlety, but occasionally, you want to send a stonking great message about the consequences of meddling with things you don't understand. Presenting a Mother Superior (AKA Morvenn Vahl, a hero from Warhammer 40k's Sisters of Battle faction), a terrifyingly unstoppable force of divine judgement. Bit of a mixed bag this one, I'm happy with a lot of it, but some bits could be better (like the terrible job I did on her face). At least she's finally done now. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  13. Wanted to continue working on my Underworld stuff, but didn't fancy the last two minis I had left in the previous thread, so thought I'd roll them into a new one. This time we've got 10 randomly chosen minis, the two dudes from the last thread and the whole Sea Elf team (They felt too fragile to pack away after I built them). Here we have Cyrille and Celine (A pair of Elven Peacekeepers) and Snoz a Goblin Scout with his wolf Fang. This set consists of Zellotl (Lizardman Warrior), Freshly Awake (a newly risen Skeleton), Frilna (a companion beast to the Fey Elves), Sorcha (battle-hardened Mercenary) and Ailithir (Evil Knight). Yrkill and Jafari (from the previous thread) plus their companions Sigmundur and Sethos (because someone or something is determined to have me paint these particular teams). Sethos isn't an Underworlds figure but is a matching Cultist from the OOP Warhammer Quest:- Silver Tower game on an old resin base I found. And this is the Sea Elf team. We've got Gaelin (he's a Fish), Tanjaya (the Warrior at the back), Indra (a Summoner), Surya (a Harpooner with no eyes) and Orym (he's a Crab). Making a start on Sorcha:- Painted the furry collar on her cape. It's a base of Cold Grey with a Black Wash and the drybrushes of Cold Grey, Ghost Grey and Off-white (Only on the upper shoulder bits). Not sure if I should paint her head next or the armour that's close to it, either way I think I'll make a mess.
  14. Finished the Paint job on another marine. I'll need to come up with a cool base. I planned out this time black, red, yellow, blue colors. Here's the first one of this set up. Here's the purebred. Give me feedback. If you'd like this black background let me know.
  15. Hello there! Now it's no secret that I'm a fan of Games Workshop minis, there's two problems with this though, I can't paint armies (I've tried, I lose interest after the first few minis) so I miss out on the interesting units, and just buying heroes gets rather expensive! Then I discovered their Underworlds game, getting little bite-sized versions of the various factions (often with fancy bases!), and now I'm obsessed. This year I want to try and put a dent in this particular pile of plastic (or, at least cancel out the new ones I'm getting), and thought a project thread might help. I've made a spreadsheet, ran a number generator and picked the first ten candidates. Laserian - An evil Knight and Balmonoth - Insidous Rat-man. The Champion - Wandering Undead Warrior (He's not actually an Underworlds mini, he's one of only two Games Workshop resin minis I brought that were cast well enough to keep, but he fits in the skeleton faction.) and One-Eyed Thabron - Orc Mercenary. Awil-sin - Fey Elf and Jafari - Cultist. Yrkill - Sky Dwarf Adventurer and Fahime - Evil Elven Assassin. Padean - Barbarian of the Western Plains and Elodie of the Blade - Elven Peacekeeper. Started working on Elodie:- Being an Elf I used Elf Fleshtone > Flesh Wash > Elf Fleshtone > Elf Fleshtone/Light Flesh, added a drop of Scarlett Red to the highlight mix for her lips, and gave her a pretty decent (IMO) pair of eyes. Next is her wacky hair.
  16. Presenting the Swamp Orc Standard Bearer, he's part of one of the newer factions in Games Workshop's Age of Sigmar range. Really happy with this one and I had a lot of fun painting all his chunky detailing! As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  17. Any Spaceport bar, where hard-bitten adventurers gather, will have a regular willing to regale strangers with tales of Lady Vulnavia's exploits, and most of the tales contain a reason behind her always veiled face. Is she secretly an exiled alien princess, or was she badly scarred duelling the King of the Space Pirates? Only the Lady knows and she's not telling. Presenting Lady Vulnavia, woman of mystery and leader of the Starstriders. She was part of the (now OOP, I think) Killteam:- Rogue Trader boxset from Games Workshop. Not one of my best paintjobs, but I'm still pretty happy with how she turned out. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  18. Starting something new, the Starstriders! A band of space adventurers, travelling the cosmos, fighting aliens and stuff. You've got the three ladies:- The deadly assassin, the Rogue Trader boss lady and the helpful medic (they all have proper names, but I sold their accompanying rulebooks so I can't look them up any more). And the three guys:- The leader of the Voidsmen, the mad scientist and the guy with the big gun. And finally, the expendable fodder Voidsmen:- Haven't gotten too far with the painting yet:- I'm starting with a Voidsman (or Voidswoman in this case), to get an idea of what I want their uniforms to look like. At the moment I've painted her jacket Dark Green with a Cork Brown>Red Orange trim and I'm trying to figure out how to shade and highlight it.
  19. I thought it would be cool to show off an older model I painted, this one is a vintage Space Marine Captain, painted in the colours of my own Chapter, the Sons of Poseidon. Comments and criticisms always wanted, let me know what you think! The model was painted using Army painter paints.
  20. As I mentioned in the thread on the Captain with Terminator Honours, here is the best painted Dreadnaught I have done, the trident symbol on the front is the chapter insignia. Let me know what you think!
  21. I finally finished some of my Ridgeback Miniatures Gundabad Orcs and Goblin Mercenaries as well as some GW Cave Trolls. More photos and details on my blog… https://thegrumpygnome.home.blog/2021/07/05/ridgeback-gundabad-orcs-goblin-mercenaries-oh-and-some-gw-cave-trolls/ Advice, suggestions and feedback welcome!
  22. Awhile back I was inspired by a gamer on the internet who had converted some Goblins into Gnomes. So I decided to try something similar but with my own style. Unsurprisingly, after I did this I found several other folks online had had similar ideas as well. Including JFA of Hagglethorn Hollow fame. https://thegrumpygnome.home.blog/2019/08/02/the-first-of-the-gnomes/ A bit of greenstuff and a change in the usual colors… presto! Gnomes instead of Goblins. In hindsight if I was doing this again I think I would use different arms, weapons and shields on the two melee models but otherwise I am pleased with how they came out. Of course they are rather big Gnomes. The next Gnomes I convert will be from Wargames Atlantic Halfling Militia….
  23. Presenting Brutogg Corpse-Eater, my first finished adventurer from the game Cursed City by Games Workshop. Had a lot of fun painting this guy, I experimented by giving him grey-hued skin to represent his unhealthy eating habits (he eats zombies) and it worked better than I thought it would. Annoyingly though, I had to leave the bits under his coat unpainted (just couldn't get a brush up there), nobody will notice unless they turn him upside down, but it still bothers me that he's technically "Unfinished". As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  24. Finished this a little while ago, but it wasn't until just recently where I was able to get it into an area that's large enough, and has even enough lighting (whoo, b-day gift of a 24" cube light box and lights!) This is the terrain element that was included in the Warhammer 40,000 Battle for Macraggae boxed starter set. WIP is available over at: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/93848-dusting-off-a-few-older-projects-to-finish-off-2020/
  25. Hello everyone, here's what I painted last week, a Skeleton Horde by Games Workshop / Citadel Miniatures from 1986. I mounted them on 25mm base and converted a few of them. I used remaining parts from other minis and changed some shields, skulls and weapons. I also printed two army trays to be able to move them more easily and change their arrangement on the game table. There's 16 skeletons in total and I intend to use them during future D&D games. More pictures under the spoiler (64 pictures).
